Co-op board seeks removal of bike sharing station

In New York City, most construction disputes between co-op boards and co-op shareholders involve conflicts over upkeep, repairs, damage or building maintenance.

New York renters and homeowners to see tax credit

Rent increases and higher property taxes have placed added financial burdens on many people throughout New York City, but a tax program included in the state's annual budget is meant to provide some relief.

NYC co-ops and condos trade vetting approaches
